LeBron James’ dream came true in June when he delivered a championship title to the city of Cleveland. Now he’s helping to pay it forward with a new reality show. Executive produced by James and business partner Maverick Carter, Cleveland Hustles (Wednesday, 10 p.m. ET, CNBC) matches four local business leaders with eight Cleveland-area entrepreneurs. Each leader selects a business to invest in and works with the entrepreneur to open a brick-and-mortar store in underserved Cleveland neighborhoods. “We’re giving people an opportunity to live out a dream and giving small-business owners a chance to do what they love to do,” said James, who grew up in nearby Akron.

Imagine that your dream car is the iconic Ferrari Testarossa (the car made famous on Miami Vice). Now imagine that it’s your 30th birthday and your husband throws you a surprise party. And he buys you a white Testarossa, complete with a big red bow to celebrate that birthday. It happened to Savannah James – wife of LeBron James. James posted this to his Instagram page along with the touching message: “…what makes me happy more than anything is putting a smile on your face! Took me a long time to find your masterpiece but I wouldn’t stop until I did and now I can’t wait to watch u cruise off into the sunset on the PCH. Happy Bday Queen 👑!!”

In a subsequent interview with USA TODAY Sports, James said, “It would be pretty amazing to be able to actually play for the greatest NBA coach of all time.” Krzyzewski will coach his final game for USA in Sunday’s gold medal game against Serbia, and Popovich, the San Antonio Spurs’ coach, will take over for the next Olympic cycle.

James, who used this summer to rest after delivering Cleveland its first NBA title, has stated recently that he hasn’t necessarily retired from USA Basketball, leaving open the door for Tokyo in 2020. Anthony could only chuckle when asked about James’ plans. “He can have it. He got it,” Anthony told the Vertical, without completely ruling out a return. “I don’t know. That’s too far ahead for me be thinking. That’s too far ahead. This decision was hard to come back this year. I think it was just the timing of what was going on in the world, what was happening here [in Brazil], what was happening in our country. Also taking into consideration family, or being healthy.”

LeBron James: So I’m sitting at home, recalibrating and thinking about the game. And everyone is kind of down at that point. For me as a leader, I couldn’t allow myself to get in a funk. I just started to try and recalibrate and say, “Listen, we’ve got to go to Golden State for game five. We’ve got to come home anyways. So why not come home and give our fans another game, and give them an opportunity to have a game six?” And that was my mindset. I was very relaxed going out to Golden State for game five, and obviously we saw what happened in that game. I was extremely confident in my teammates’ abilities throughout game five, and then coming home in game six to our fans, who are ecstatic and crazy as can be. And then, in game seven, it’s one game. It’s sudden death, and it doesn’t matter what’s going on at that point. I believe in one game, I’m going to take myself every time.
